    Is Sandboxie enough protection against script attacks?

    I run all my browsers in Sandboxie, but do you think I should run NoScript or ScriptNo as well, or is Sandboxie enough for these type of attacks?

    Your input is much appreciated.

    Sandboxie (and sandboxes in general - though some will) don't protect you from in-browser attacks. NoScript does.

    It's enough in that if you do come across a script attack (which in most cases will also use a drive-by download/execution, which Sandboxie will stop cold if set up properly), it will be history once the sandbox is deleted. That's not to say nothing will happen while inside that box, so keep a very strict, separate sandbox for sensitive issues. Noscript is all fine and good, provided you don't allow the wrong scripts, and on a new website, there's no way to really know what's good and bad (aside from well known advertising trackers).
